LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
SA1 15:24 And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have
transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I
feared the people, and obeyed their voice.
SA1 15:25 Now therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again
with me, that I may worship the LORD.
SA1 15:26 And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for
thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee
from being king over Israel.
SA1 15:27 And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the
skirt of his mantle, and it rent.
